"A network icon will appear in the taskbar in the lower right-hand corner of your screen and the picture of the two little computers will start to blink".This does not happen unless I connect to the internet first,then I have to put a check mark by "show icon in task bar"in network settings(while connected).I have to do this every time I am connected won't show icon unless I do it this way..The check mark won't stay when I disconnect from internet.
Has anyone else had this problem in (XP home)

The icons will not show up until you connect. (on a dialup) This is normal. When you disconnect from the internet, the icon disappears also. If you are on a LAN, you can turn these on also, when the LAN is disconnected, a RED X appears in the little TV icon. In other words, on a dialup connection, the icons are supposed to disappear when the connection is lost. Exception to this is on an external modem, then the icon should appear with a RED X through it when disconnected. Do you have an external modem? The LAN icon will always be present when a network card is installed. The LAN and Dialup icons look alike. I hope I understood your problem. If not, please post back with the exact type of connection you are using and as much info about where exactly you are going to reset you icon. Thanks
